Wireless

Wireless access is available in all academic and administrative buildings and most outdoor spaces at WMU. Secure connections are available and in addition two guest use options are available. Wireless connections are not intended to replace wired connections in individual offices. For information regarding wired connections, please see on-campus connections.

Wireless is also available in the public areas and individual rooms of residence halls and in Stadium Drive and Western View apartments. It is not yet available in Elmwood or Goldsworth Valley apartments but will be at a later date.

Wireless connections are less secure than wired connections. If you choose to use a wireless connection, you should be cautious about what sort of information you transmit. For example, if you visit websites that require a login name and password, or credit card information or other personal information, be aware that the information you enter is not secure and consider using the VPN, or WMU secure wireless
